News & Events
The DST CDT are hosting an exciting series of Webinars on different aspects of Diamond Science and Technology. Click here for more details.
The Royal Society of Chemistry offers an Inclusion and Diversity Fund providing financial support for innovative products, activities and research projects that do just that.
Previous recipients of their funding have included projects related to gender, disability, socio-economic background, language, BAME scientists and the LGBT+ community. These have been delivered via initiatives such as data collection and analysis, workshops, conferences and hackathons.
They will consider individual applications up to the value of £5,000. Funding greater than £5,000 may be considered for one project each year. Click this link to find out more.
